New Delhi, Jun 4 (UNI) The CBI, which took over investigations of the sensational Noida double murder case on Sunday last, today subjected prime accused Dr Rajesh Talwar to a lie detector test.

The CBI took Dr Talwar -- father of Arushi, who along with the family's domestic help Hemraj were found brutally murdered on May 16 -- to Haridwar early today.

Dr Talwar and his dentist wife Nupur, along with some close relatives had rushed to Haridwar to perform the last rites of Aarushi. This had aroused the suspicion of Noida police which too had taken the dentist to Haridwar recently.

The CBI questioned the same 'panda' (priest) who had performed the lat rites of the teenager.

Meanwhile, according to the CBI, it has constituted 10 teams to probe the various aspects of the crime.

Forensic experts from CBI on Monday had used special tools to carve out a bloody fingerprint from a wall of the Jalvayu Vihar residence of Talwars where teenaged Aarushi and Hemraj were found murdered.

Aarushi's body was found in her apartment on May 16 and the police had immediately suspected domestic help Hemraj as the prime suspect. They were, however, proved wrong when Hemraj's body was spotted on the terrace of the building the next day.

Police had later taken the father into custody, alleging that Dr Talwar killed Aarushi in a fit of rage, as he objected her proximity to Hemraj.

Dr Talwar's wife Nupur, who is also a dentist, has defended her husband, saying he is innocent and both of them discovered Aarushi's body together.
